March 8, 2015 – So, Oreo met a neighbor dog yesterday…

Three stitches and $430 later I give you…Oreo the invalid. It didn’t help that I was screaming like a little girl. They’ll probably become fast friends, but when I saw the young, strong dog charging at mine I started screaming for help. The owner’s little boy had accidentally let the dog out and he came charging down the street after us. Luckily I got back to my own yard, but am too out of shape so didn’t make it to the house. The owner was right there, grabbed his pooch (who is actually a sweetie, they just got carried away) and came back to apologize, explain, and check on Oreo. These things happen. It’s a dog thing. 🙂

As soon as Oreo’s up for it we’re jumping back in the buggy and starting our 5K training again. Her spirits and appetite are good. I just ordered a Figure 8 harness since the stitches are right where her regular harness goes, and you know she’s so tricky a collar alone won’t cut it. Thank you, Renee, for the Vetericyn, I’ll be applying that today.

Tripawd mom to angel Oreo, who passed over the Rainbow Bridge on Oct. 7, 2019. I miss her to pieces.

  1. Oh my gosh I’m so glad everything is OK. Poor Oreo! Nothin’ worse than the cone of shame. That vetericyn will help you heal faster so take it easy, you got some 5k training to do!


  2. Oreo! You have quite a good human protector! Hope you and your doggy buddy have made up by now. Guess he’s just not used to seeing you as a tripawd…with that darn cone on!

    Rest up…s t ay fit and healthy…and show the world how tripawds rock!!!
    Hugs to all!

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle too!
